An unsung member of the valuable viburnum varieties, Oneida viburnum is an easy to grow hybrid related to the Viburnum dilatatum group (V. dilatatum x V. lobophyllum). Heavy annual flowering in late May; good clean summer foliage; pretty darn nice reds and oranges for fall color; and good clusters of blood red fruit persisting into winter all conspire to make this husky plant a very good addition to the shrub border or a candidate for specimen planting. Select another Viburnum dilatatum group member for cross-pollination, and ensure best fruiting.

Here in KY on heavy clay loam, this plant has performed admirably with little extra assistance.
